Dear Students,

Welcome back to campus!  While you have been away, there have been new developments in the Sciences, which may be important to you.  Since the College was just approved, courses related to the CIS were not listed during pre-registration.

A core mission of this new college is to develop student skills in interdisciplinary thinking and science research that cuts across disciplines. Interdisciplinary approaches are becoming vital for success and growth in our current technology driven society.

To introduce students to these challenges, the CIS is offering a new seminar course, “Research Frontiers in research1 the Sciences” (CIS 221/222).  The course is open to all students who have completed at least an introductory science course, and forms the gateway for students who are interested in the “linked-major” offered by the CIS.  It is available in add-drop.  The 0.50 credit course meets Fridays, 2:40-3:30 p.m.

Visit our webpages (http://www.wesleyan.edu/cis), check out wesmaps, or contact me for further information.

Have a productive semester!   Prof. Francis W. Starr, Professor, Physics Department, and Director, College of Integrative Sciences

Dear members of the sophomore class,

researchAre you planning to declare a major in History this year?  Do you think you might study abroad in the fall semester of your junior year?  And are you ready for the intellectual challenge of a lifetime?

If the answer to these three questions is “yes”, then you should consider taking HIST 362 this fall.  This course is required of all History majors and is supposed to be taken in the fall of the junior year.  It is only offered in the fall semester every year.  The History Department has decided to open one section of this course this fall to prospective majors in the sophomore class.

Questions?  Email wpinch@wesleyan.edu.

Do you need someone to listen? WESupport peers are now holding office hours in room 217 of the Davison Health Center. We’re a CAPS-affiliated, confidential peer support program of students who have been trained in active listening skills.  We are happy to talk with you about whatever is troubling you, whether it is a big issue or a small one.  We will not give advice or suggest solutions to your problems – we offer empathy and can give you information about campus and community resources. So if you ever feel overwhelmed, sad, or just want to chat, stop by! (Bonus: We have free coffee and tea!)

The WESupport student-led mental health support group has filled to capacity.  The group will not be able to accommodate any new members this semester, but additional support groups are already being planned for the fall.  If you would like to join a group next semester, email Dr. D’Andrea at jdandrea@wesleyan.edu.  WESupport looks forward to seeing you at a future support group!

Jennifer T. D’Andrea, Ph.D., Director, Counseling and Psychological Services
